500ml Bottle. Its aroma is of sweet fruits and floral notes. It pours a golden amber with a fast fading white head. Its taste is a lot blander than you would expect given the aroma. It fact theres very little there except water and a dry bitter finish. Not a lot to write home about on this one - drinkable but lacking in flavour and character.

Hmm, was hoping for more from this, lacks aroma, looks ok tho! Palate has citrus hops as expected, but I find it a tad unbalanced. One of those that fall into the "I’ve had worse....." category.

Bit on the boring unremarkable side. Looks a bit watered down and has most of what you expect as a standard ipa. At least it is not green king ipa.

Head a bit too thin, but I like this a lot. It’s got some poke, and is a good solid IPA that doesn’t get too hoppy.

Mitä IPAa se tällainen on? Ihan perus Lager, vähän laimea vaan. Ei tätä enää. Lättyä Lättyä.

Bottled, 500ml from Morrison’s in Banbury. Gold with fizzed white head. There is a chemical, sulphery note from the off, sharp, slightly salty then a hint of floral hop but not enough to make much of a difference. Not really for me.
